Jeff Green Hits Game-Winner in Front of His Heart Surgeon

 

You really couldn’t write up a better script last night for Jeff Green. Trailing by 14 points with eight minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the Celtics appeared to be destined for their sixth straight loss. The starters returned to the game however, and the team, behind Green and Paul Pierce, began chipping away at the lead.

Green hit a number of tough shots from all over the floor, and the C’s were actually able to get stops AND secure rebounds against a feisty Cleveland squad. Incredibly the Cavs have ZERO offensive rebounds in the final 18 minutes of the game.

The final act was all set up for another one of Doc Rivers’ greatest hits (should we add this play to the list?). Jason Terry set a sneaky screen at the top of the key on Luke Walton, allowing Green to get free. Then, as Brendan Jackson wisely pointed out, Green went to the basket and played through the contact for the clutch layup.

Another key element to look out for while watching? Notice how Pierce is tucked away in the corner as a decoy, completely taking his man out of the play to open up the lane for Green. The magical pipes of Mike Gorman made a tremendous call on the play as well.

It gets better though. The coolest thing about this whole night? Green did it all in front of his heart surgeon.

Greg Dickerson spoke to the doctor while the game was in progress last night, and as Green headed to the locker room during the postgame, he passed his doctor courtside, before realizing who it was and heading back to give him a hug.

A storybook ending to what could end up being a huge win for the Celtics this season. The Bucks fell last night to the Sixers, which means Boston now is up 2 1/2 games over Milwaukee for the crucial 7th seed in the Eastern Conference.

The road won’t get much easier with the Atlanta Hawks coming into town Friday night, but Boston can sleep easier knowing they have a little more breathing room for the time being. A miraculous 21-6 run to close out the game did the trick against Cleveland and moving forward the Celtics will surely not take this or any other win for granted without KG.

    The funny thing is, Alonzo Gee’s solid defensive play on Pierce might have cost the Cavs the game. He had Pierce covered pretty good and if he hadn’t knocked that ball away, Pierce likely would’ve taken a tough, contested shot.
    Funny how things work out sometimes.

    so great for jeff. I know he catches a lot of flack from C's fans (myself included at times.), but i am really pulling for the guy. Great story, seems like a decent guy, and he shows flashes that make you believe he could be the number one option for this team down the road. keep at it.
